Mojo Green is a seven-piece high energy, horn-riven funk and soul machine from Reno that has become known as one of the West Coast’s hottest live music dance bands. “Funk in Public” and “Soul Phatasaxtion” won Best Albums of Northern Nevada in 2013, 2014 and 2016 (as voted by readers of the Reno News and Review), as the 2017 Forte Award for Best R&B /Soul Band.

Mojo Green is Frank “Fletch” Fletcher on drums with Ivan Gates on bass, Tim Bain on guitar, a powerhouse horn section composed of Kevin Thomas on baritone sax, Monty Adams on trumpet and Davis Corl on trombone, with Jenes Carter adding her soulful and sexy vocal leads,

Mojo Green plays a style all its own that is funky, upbeat and impossible not to dance to.

Hailing from Davis, California, Boot Juice is a five-piece band, playing river rock and mountain blues. The quintet is know to leave dance floors stick. Boot Juice just released a new album, “Speaking In Tones.” With Boot Juice and Mojo Green onstage, this show might just become dancing-room-only.
